The Maven


With an address like No 1 Call Lane, this place has got to be a cut above the rest. This is the closest that Leeds gets to a speakeasy and we’re going with it. Keep an eye out for the doorman, look like you know what you’re doing and take a hike up the staircase. Once inside it’ll feel more mate's super-cool, corner apartment than cocktail bar: the walls are a deep grey, the high ceilings give it a spacious grandness and play the spot the albino reindeer game!

With such an impressive looking back bar and bartenders that look the part, there is little to say that whatever you drink here won’t taste spot on. We went for the Mothers Ruin punch to share, it’s £40 a pop but a beautiful concoction of Hendrick's Gin, Pimm's, orange curacao, Aperol, lemon juice, Grenadine, orange juice, lychee juice and sugar syrup. If you’re not into sharing, their Smokey Tommys with Penca Mezca, El Jimador Tequila, lime juice and agave syrup is bang on. Their menu is extensive and they have the kind of staff that are able to fix you up whatever you need. See you in there.
